Solid US job gains pointing
to a stronger recovery

Associated Press, by Josh Boak

Original Article

Posted By:Zarin, 7/4/2014 6:23:18 AM

The 5-year-old U.S. recovery is gaining momentum from a surprisingly robust job market and moving the economy closer to full health. Employers added 288,000 jobs in June and helped cut the unemployment rate from 6.3 percent to 6.1 percent, the lowest since 2008. It was the fifth straight monthly gain above 200,000 — the best such stretch since the late 1990s tech boom. The stock market signaled its approval. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 92 points to top 17,000 for the first time. The breadth and consistency of the job growth are striking in part because of how poorly

Comments:
AP keeps up the lie about the ´recovering´ economy. Mr. Boak must be trying to get back in the good graces of his editors - most of his recent stories have had more truth in them. This is all tissue paper stats - look at the labor force participation! And the Dow goes up 17,000 on this? We are in trouble.

If, repeat if, the US economy recovers it will be in spite of, not because of, Dear Leader Barack Hussein, who has not taken a single action in 6 years in favour of any recovery whatsoever, on the contrary, which should be a revelation as good as any of his true intentions.

The last thing the Left wants are economically independent Americans. The very last thing.

According to Ed Rogers in the WaPo, last month 523k Full-time positions were lost, 799k Part-time positions were gained. There´s your 280k job gains. No business can afford to pay for Obamacare for Full-time workers.

The reduction in "unemployement"? That´s because more people gave up looking for jobs. 47.7% of Americans are in Full-Time employement.

The economy is still tanking. And the libs are taking victory laps over half-truths and deceit.

You don´t go from a 3% contraction to a 3% growth because you get one better but still anemic jobs report. They´ve been shouting ´recovery!´ for five years now and we haven`t had one yet. Let them stop the quantitative easing (money printing) and see where we really are.

My understanding these jobs were mostly part time. How is the economy recovering on part time work???? As for the stock market, the U.S. is still pumping money into it with money we DON´T have. They are telling us that the unemployment rate is 6.1% when it is really 12.1%. It´s all a fantasy!!!!!

I suspect the number of US reporters who have taken classes in economics can be counted on one hand. Even reporters on the business beat often have problems with basic economic concepts and simple statistical analysis.

Exactly what companies are doing all the hiring? I haven´t heard of any big employment programs. Or is the Federal government throwing our money around and taking on more useless staff to bring more taxpayers to their knees?

Providence had its hand on me, when I took a new job in May. Returned to a large company that I had been employed by before. The facility I left was part of another fairly large company but has been (the facility) in long, slow decline since 2008. Got the news this week that it is essentially closing its doors and moving production overseas. From about 140 employees (a good portion highly skilled toolmakers) to a skeleton crew. Most saw it coming, through years of layoffs.

The six-month job recovery coincides exactly with the truncation of jobless benefits expired at the start of the year proving what many conservative economists said all along: stop excessively long benefits and people will get off the teat and find jobs. Lesson over.

If the country can only create part time jobs for American workers, where are all the new jobs going to come from to employ the tens of millions of illegal aliens and unlimited numbers of their foreign family members that Obama wants to legalize, or allow into the USA, and throw into the legal US labor market?

The country needs 300,000 new jobs a month just to tread water. The only reason the unemployment rate dropped is because so many people used up their unemployment insurance and aren´t counted.

Hundreds of children in southwest Ohio have been hospitalized with severe respiratory illnesses in recent weeks in what is suspected to be one of the biggest outbreaks of a rare human enterovirus in recent years, state and local health officials said Monday. Enterovirus D68 is genetically similar to the rhinovirus that causes the common cold. But the enterovirus can cause more severe asthma-like symptoms, including trouble breathing, fever, body and muscle aches, that have brought parents flooding into local emergency departments with their children.

Rep. Bruce Braley (D., Iowa) threatened to sue a homeowners’ association after a chicken crossed onto his vacation home property in Iowa, again raising concerns that the Senate candidate is out-of-touch with farmers in the state, the Iowa Republican reports. The dispute started this spring after one of his neighbor’s chickens appeared on his vacation property in Holiday Lake, Iowa: Braley’s wife Carolyn attended a May 8 meeting of the Holiday Lake Owner’s Association to complain about the fowl. The dispute escalated, causing the association to incur nearly $1,700 in legal fees after Braley called the association’s attorney with an implied threat

The Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body Wednesday, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Seeking to calm the explosive situation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged a swift inquiry into the "reprehensible murder" and called on people to respect the rule of law. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was clear extremist Jewish settlers were responsible and called on Israel to bring the killers to justice. "The settlers have killed and burned a little boy.

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious.

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such
